Young Russian compatriots over 12 years old living in Greece are invited to join the Olympiad dedicated to the history of Russia. Its main topic will be the "common pages" of the history of the Russian and Greek peoples, according to the website of the Coordinating Council of Organizations of Russian Compatriots in Greece.

The competiton will be included in the program of the cross year of history, which is timed to coincide with the two-century anniversary of the beginning of the liberation struggle of the Greek people. It is Russia that made a huge contribution to Greece's independence. Representatives of the Greek diaspora have also done a lot to develop the culture and economy of Russia.

The tournament for young history connoisseurs is held by the Financial University under the Government of the Russian Federation. The co-organizers are the All-Slavic Union of Greece and the Slavyanka school.

Due to the unfavorable epidemiological situation, the competition will be held online.

The winners of the tournament will be entitled to free education at the Financial University within the quota of the Government of the Russian Federation. The winners of the Olympiad are provided with a 50% discount for the entire period of study.

And that 18 years later, he would finally return to his homeland to see new openings for both life and creativity.
